It's why I bought a beat-up looking old used one. Well, no, actually, I bought a beat-up used one because it was cheap, and structurally sound.

I love having the handle and wheels, and the fact that I don't have to worry about things falling on my case etc. (Years ago a drunk guy fell flat on top of my semi-rigid case out at a Highland Games... luckily my pipes somehow escaped damage.)

The drawbacks to that style of case are 1) having to break down the pipes 2) the case is heavy.
